At The Jefferson School we are reimagining education — one engaged, motivated child at a time.

MISSION

The Jefferson School believes that children who are actively engaged in hands-on, nature-centered, experiential learning:


- are more readily able to absorb new ideas and integrate them with their current knowledge. 

- develop a passion for both lifelong learning and global awareness. 

- develop an early connection to the natural world as well as a desire to preserve it.

 


To that end, The Jefferson School strives to offer an exceptional, active learning environment of nature-centered strategies for children from preschool through grade 8.

 

VISION

The Jefferson School is recognized as a leader in developing and promoting relevant, hands-on, nature-centered educational strategies for students from preschool through grade 8.

In Atlanta, the now defunct Georgia Dome will be razed later this year and transformed into a new urban park. Due to open in 2018, the 13-acre park will serve as year-round community green space for arts and culture events, entertainment and community activations. As part of ongoing revitalization efforts, the park aims to serve as a backyard for those living in the surrounding Westside Atlanta neighborhoods of Vine City and English Avenue.

In Mumbai, children’s play areas are on the decline, leaving them with extremely limited safe outdoor play options.
